More About The Lost Gift by Kallie George; Stephanie Graegin
 
 
 
Overview
In this charming Christmas-themed picture book that feels like a classic, four animals deliver a lost package for Santa.
It's Christmas Eve, and Bird, Rabbit, Deer, and Squirrel are eagerly waiting for Santa to fly overhead. When he does, a gift tumbles out of his sleigh, landing in the woods. The friends find the gift and read the tag: "For the new baby at the farm. Love, Santa." And so, in spite of Squirrel's grumbling--"It's not our baby"--they set off on a long journey to deliver it. Sweet, poignant, and starring a cast of truly adorable characters, this is a story sure to be shared year after year at Christmastime.

After Santa drops a package in the woods, a quartet of animals attempts to deliver the gift to its proper destination, in a tender story set in a hushed forest. George (Duck, Duck, Dinosaur) succinctly sketches personalities for her heroesRabbit is the exuberant optimist, Bird gets things done, Deer helps cheerfully, and Squirrel is a kvetch. There are some hiccups on their way to a nearby farmhouse, but its all worth it when they see the New Baby open her gift from Santa, a rattle. (Or, as Squirrel puts it, a noisy, lumpy stick.) Graegin (How to Share with a Bear) creates sweeping expanses of moonlit snow for the animals to traverse under midnight blue Christmas Eve skies, creating an atmosphere of quiet magic as the animals discover the rewards of doing a kind deed. Ages 48. Authors agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management. Illustrators agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Oct.)
